There is the consideration of valid and illicit. God will not be undone. The unallowed elements were an aside that did not undo the ligitimacy of the mass itself but merely were present. Prayers to your daughter and her child, CDN. Life is so very fragile, but the Lord is our strength. But now, I avoid it even when goaded by my left friends and family. It is like discussing with a drunk. There is no logic or reason — it dissolves into bitter name-calling, and all I hear are sound bites repeated from the liberal media talking heads.
There is no original thought expressed. It is painful to see the propaganda played out over and over — a little Purgatory. On the good side, no one is watching the TVs. Patients are just looking at their phones. I think waiting room TVs should just play live-streams of puppies.
Like Liked by 13 people. Ha, Marianne! Come to think of it, a live stream of somebody feeding branches into a wood chipper would be preferable to anything from the mainstream media. Break out a Rosary and pray. I got into the habit of openly praying the rosary while sitting in the patient lounge or waiting for an appointment.
It is wonderful. My mom was once called Sister Eileen because she was praying it in a waiting room. We loved it. Thank you for reminding me of a beautiful moment with my mom. I prayed the Seven Sorrows Devotion in rehab during my 10 minutes on the stationary bike and The Divine Mercy Chaplet while having my cyro therapies at the end of most sessions. Fortunately my waiting room times were short and sweet.
I sat with my back to the TV and watched and prayed over my fellow patients as they nodded in affirmation, whispered, pointed and just ate up what was being fed to them. On occasion, I made no qualms about suggesting the something, anything besides the MSM news be broadcast on site to the reception staff and some of my therapists too. Every once in a while they would have on The Better Homes and Gardens channel.
Then I'd pray the Rosary on the drive home! I now ask for the office manager and complain. The View is the worse. I ask them to use some common sense and use home improvement or cooking channels.
They have changed them. On the good news front, there are a couple of ladies who are fighting the pro-life fight. Each of these ladies, Sara Winter and Amparo Medina, were well trained radical feminists — pro-abortionists, anti-god. Each of them had a Saul of Tarsus -Damascus moment and now are pro-life and pro-family. What is amazing that Sara Winter only a couple of years ago was spouting the crazy nonsense of feminists. You can find youtube videos of her when she was a radical feminist.
The grace and mercy of God in changing the minds and lives of these women and giving them courage to boldly proclaim the truth shows that there is hope for this world. This link is both of them talking about the lies of feminism.
Archbishop Vigano gave a great response to the Pachamama sacrilege from his hiding place. It was the same bowl that was used during the pagan ceremony that took place in the Vatican Gardens at the beginning of the Synod. Just google, Pachamama, New Age Worship that describes how the bowl of dirt represents Pachamama, mother earth. And how plants are put in it for the fake goddess. And placed there by instruction from the Vicar of Christ.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us! Mark Levin on Hannity regarding rhe whistleblower and impeachment. The video is at times shaky but makes the point. Minute mark or so speaks on the lack of transition in the Presidency. I remember someone saying this would happen… lol. Quite holy…told him he reminds me of the cure of auers… sp?
Charlie- on a much lighter note, you were in my dream last night! I dreamt that I was on vacation in a foreign country and I had brought my car with me. I had to leave my car where it was in the middle of the road and try to find help. I walked to a nearby pharmacy that was full of people.
I scanned all the people in the place looking for someone who could help me. In the very back of the pharmacy, I saw you having a friendly conversation with someone.
I recognized you right away and was going to ask you where you would recommend I take my car to be repaired but then I realized you only walked everywhere and would not be able to help me! I hardly ever remember my dreams but this was so vivid. I have a good friend, Billy Davis, who just turned He is in hospital now after a series of health problems.
Please join me in prayers for Billy D. In the course of numerous paintings and renovations it disappeared. In the years of my lukewarmness and sloth concerning my faith, I never really thought much about its disappearance. Last year, I ended up in the hospital for six days. I am not certain but either today or yesterday are the one year anniversary of my discharge.
I was blessed to have be taken by the rescue to a hospital in our city which was founded by a Jewish charitable organization. The hospital, while open to all and serving a largely non-Jewish population, has remained faithful to its Jewish beginnings. My room, and every room in the building has a mezuzah, hanging on the door posts.
I have since learned that these objects are containers for small scrolls on which are written a number of verses from the Old Testament. One of them is the line above which in Hebrew is called the Shema.
I felt like Miriam was watching out for me, just as she had watch over the baby Moses when his mother was forced to put him in the basked in the Nile to save his life. I shared my feelings about this with my wife. For my birthday she ordered two Mezuzahs for me.
One for our city house and one for our cabin. In addition to these she also ordered two plaques with the words from Joshua. Last weekend I was doing some fall cleaning and came upon the box. I do not really believe in co-incidences. I believe that God, through the Holy Spirit, is constantly speaking to us and using the things and people around is in a never-ending call to bring us back to the Lord Jesus. Sometimes we hear, or are aware of this movement, other times we are quite able to ignore and avoid it.
My sudden onset pneumonia last year was a big wakeup call from God. It showed me how short is my attention span to the important things and it revealed how easily I can get distracted. Things have developed rapidly in the past year. The sides are absolutely drawn and are out in the open.
We are called, and we will continually be called, to choose. To choose God, to choose Jesus, to choose life. It is time to shake ourselves awake and to be ready to be true to our choice. Thank you, Charlie for the words. Linda if you are currently in Norwalk, we are neighbors! Things are definitely heating up — I would love to connect and fortify…is this OK to ask Beckita? Oh of course Beckita. Charlie, I wholeheartedly agree with your comments on the abhorrent behavior of pope Francis and his idolatrous pagan worship!!
I saw through him years ago! As we know, the Devil comes in many forms. I have always been suspicious of this man in the Vatican. Especially, when over the years he has nothing to say about the mutilation and murder of hundreds of thousands of Christians by middle eastern terrorists.
But he willingly condemns the USA and our President every chance he gets. He needs to be removed from the Holiest of positions in our Catholic Church. I have a strong and justified fear for what the Chinese are about to do to Japan during the Storm in retribution for WW2. For that reason, Midway will probably do quite well in China. Thank God we have Donald Trump. Mike n I are noticing that movies are starting to show Chinese speaking in Chinese with no captions…strange…why would this be???
Escape plan 3… we wathen because Mike loves sylvester stallone n the movie was made here in ohio at old Mansfield prison.. When at the China Luck buffet, I usually give my fortune cookie to the waitress as a tip. That would be like learning German in Cool, Mick. Hoping to go see it on Saturday.
But seeing it the second time, I was thinking about you seeing it with your daughter and heard every. I lived in Boston for a couple years, and we quite liberally sprinkle the F-bomb every other sentence. But when I watched it with my friend Pam the older Catholic lady with M.
It was probably spoken times. Thanks, Patrick, for another great heads-up. One would expect it from secular sources but those at the helm of Mother Church? It seems our choosing entails standing up for Truth where we see it adulterated in our circle of influence. I find the most poignant example of this is the case of Alexander Tschugguel who chucked the pachamamas into the Tiber.
It should not be attempted, however, without a sincere recourse to the will of God in deep prayer. I hope and pray that I can be so bold and precise when my time of choosing comes. I saw and posted that on fb…really interesting. God help us all. There was a period of having dreams that I absolutely knew were from the Lord, and to this day they remain vivid, unlike other dreams that one forgets. There were dreams that have materialized for me and others, and some that have not come to pass.
It was a brief scene, as I came upon a small room that had the door closed. My hand found a light switch on the wall, so I turned on the light. What I saw horrified me — hundreds, if not thousands, of those horrific bugs I hate to even name them, roaches completely covering the walls.
There was a shelf up high that I could just reach, and it had a white paper bag on it. I opened the bag and saw a scorpion. Then I woke up! I believed that the white bag all by itself on a shelf was some future pope. Just writing this down causes my heart to beat so hard.
For your discernment, as Michael Brown says. God bless us all! I still think Pope Francis is good but stuck between a rock hahaha and hard place liberals I have seen his pics on fb and lately he looks very unhealthy. Let us pray all the harder for him. What troubleshooting he must be undergoing…scary.
Thank you for your honesty, and speaking truth in these times, Charlie! Deeply appreciate you all. Please pray for our local diocese and one of the Catholic schools there. And please pray for our Bishop to be there to back up the school in doing what is right if there is an agenda behind this, and if the LGBTQ movement decides to make things very difficult for all involved.
I have tried as hard as I could to give the Holy Father the benefit of the doubt in the Vatican Garden ceremony that kicked off the synod. I heard explanations about he might have been uncomfortable with the heat, etc. But his reaction, words and sentiments since then leave little doubt in my mind that he was aware. Hence my yes to the question above. Since, as Catholics, we have the five precepts Mass attendance, confession, etc , is it assumed that if things get really ugly that we may have to travel some distance to find a faithful church?
How will we know? A reply to this question resides in another post concerning the Marian Movement of Priests. Please read the letter. Stick with the Pope and pray for him and all our Priests. The Mass is the source and summitt of our Catholic Faith. Understand this, no matter how devout a Catholic Priest may or may not be, the sacrafice of the Mass is the same.
I have been praying for Peace to reign within our hearts me. Hi Sean— you say we should stick to the Pope. I feel like the Pope has not stuck to us. It seems he has left Catholics who strive to be aligned with authentic Church teachings. I asked one of my spiritual advisors, an incredibly holy canon lawyer priest, if he felt there was a worse Pope in history in terms of straying from the magisterium.
He said no— there were some horrifically flawed popes in the past— but none who spoke and wrote and acted contrary to church teaching like Francis. Not sure what to make of it but Scalfari has just released further statements that have Pope Francis denying the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. I hear ya, Matthew. Just the other day, my daughter asked me a question. A calming voice on the Pachamama scandal by the U. I just completed my first ever Novena.
Not sure why I avoid jumping into novenas…. I do whole-heartedly recommend this book to those who were raised by an abusive or troubled mother and who may still suffer the ill-effects from it:. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal.
Bernard of Clairvaux. With all due respect, wonder if St. Bernard would say the above if he was alive now. Pope Francis seems to have a sincere devotion to the BVM, inc. Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities were silenced in a few short weeks…. I never had any special interest in the Church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration because the Church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom.
I am forced thus to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly. I discovered this very insightful column over at The Catholic Thing. Weinandy is a very solid, orthodox theologian. I am attaching a portion of an e-mail that I received from Texas Right to Life this evening. Please pray for this baby girl and her mother; and please contact the person listed. It is truly a matter of life and death for this little girl. This is tonight, a talk by the Bishop of Tyler.
Register to listen live online. That is a marker. Christians are now awake and alive to Christ who is our authority. They are true to Christ. It does not take a genius to see that Francis violated the first commandment, the greatest commandment. It is pain and simple. This is truly THE defining moment of his papal term.. A horrific moment. In his attempt to be inclusive, as all the Left is prone to do, he showed us who he really is. He has offended God and he has offended all who honor and love Him.
He is much more a politician than a leader of a Christian faith. Now there is absolutely no doubt. To tell you the truth my view is that most average Americans are completely tuned out of this impeachment thing.
If they think anything at all about it they view it as a farce and a political gimmick. A waste of time and energy with the outcome already known.
Boys being boys. Cafeteria food fight. A political process. Designed merely to distract from real corruption. Smoke, mirrors and look at the bear! Purely a smear job to dirty up President Trump. To sew doubts in voters minds. To Distract from the Democrats complicity with the Deep State and the media to illegally remove a duly elected President the public be damned.
With no real hope of actually succeeding and that is the problem with this thing:.

But the media sold their collective soul to the devil 11 years ago, going all in for the Democrats, facts and evidence be damned. The gulf between reality and the media narrative has become so vast it can no longer be bridged, so their only hope is to try to make the gaslighting of America work — even as they look more and more like Baghdad Bob , who once announced to the press that there were NO Americans in Baghdad even as American tanks were approaching in the background of the TV camera shot.
Once the gaslighting fails catastrophically, a lot of media companies will go bankrupt and those that survive will have cleaned house entirely. For better or worse, the current establishment media has tied its fortunes entirely to the Democrat Party. Times of great turmoil and instability are times when the most conspiracy theories abound. Paradoxically, they are also the times when the most conspiracies happen, as well. Here are a couple of what the media calls conspiracy theories that are no such thing:.
There are a host more such examples. The point is that we will continue to endeavor to judge righteous judgment here. If credible evidence and hard facts lead to a reasonable conclusion, we will talk about it openly, regardless of whether the caterwauling media dismiss it as a conspiracy theory.
We will not, however, engage in extravagant flights of fancy that have little factual or logical basis. Given the times we are in, I will tend to be more permissive on the subject than I would in more stable times. The more I have thought about Pope Francis apology for the original theft of the idolatrous Pachamama statues, the angrier I have gotten. People prostrated themselves before that statue at the opening ceremonies.
That is a universal sign of worship, worship that we Catholics give only to God. Yes, we venerate saints and ask them to pray for us, but we do not prostrate ourselves even before Mary. That is reserved for God. Some people think that when a Priest or seminarian prostrates himself on the altar, he is worshipping a fellow Priest or Bishop. That is just a misunderstanding of the Real Presence. We believe that Christ is truly present in the Eucharistic Host.
Such prostration is to Christ in the Host. This episode supports those who smear Catholics as idolators. It is repulsively disgusting to me that he did not stop the ceremony as soon as he saw what was happening — and then had the idolatrous statues installed in the Sacred Church space where the Amazon Synod played out.
There are some things that you either did, or did not, do — and your intent can, at best, mitigate your culpability. It cannot absolve you. What we know is that the Pope stood by approvingly as a pagan idol worship ceremony was used to open a Catholic Christian Synod. If he had argued he was caught off guard and did not know what was coming, that could have mitigated his culpability.
Instead, he defended the pagan idol, the pagan ceremony and actually integrated the pagan idol into Christian ceremonies after he had certain knowledge of what it was.
This was clearly a desolating abomination. The Pope now argues that St. Paul announced Christ to pagans without attacking them. So he did. But what he did not do was actually participate in their idol worship. Some are excited that the Pope has asked Cdl. Robert Sarah to comment on the Amazonian rite , as if that will make it all good.
If you were telling me Cdl Sarah would make the decision, my heart would be calmed — but I suspect this is just another orthodox voice the Pope often likes to include in his little basket before ignoring it and making an offensive and scandalous decision.LMDS, abbreviation for "Les Messagers du Son" was a French language hip hop duo in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in the late s made up of Lyrik and Mélo.
